When it comes time to behind the wheel fun, there is nothing worse than sliding around on a seat that isn't designed for rigors of performance driving, in fact, the seats in your Mustang are just as important to the overall driving experience as shifter, steering wheel, and the pedals! A fantastic set of seats are designed to hold you in place during spirited driving, while also retaining a wide range of adjustability and offering up a clean, custom look. While the bucket seats in Mustangs are designed to hold you in place, they are also designed to a specific price point and designed for a wide variety of body shapes and seat comfort preferences. If you're building the ultimate performance Mustang, you'll quickly realize that the stock seats just simply aren't going to cut it.
From the very beginning, the bucket seat in Mustangs formed a unique piece of the iconic interior design that would be copied many, many years later with the S197 Mustang that bowed in 2005. They utilized a unique striped pattern that was offset with subtle bolsters and unique scooped high-back. For the time, late 1960's Mustang's interiors were commendably driver-focused. As the years carried on, the trend towards driver-focused interior continued, along with maintaining the unique styling cues first shown in the earliest of Mustangs.
The main benefit of upgrading your stock Mustang seats boils down to one word: bolstering. Bolting in a proper performance seat from brands like Steeda, TMI, Corbeau, or Ford Performance ensures that you're held tightly in place as your Mustang corners through your favorite circuit or even on the street. This has the benefit of keeping your body upright so that you can focus on proper hand position and proper footwork. You'll also have the benefit of less fatigue during aggressive driving as the seat holds you in place vs. bracing yourself with your legs or arms to stay upright. Performance bucket seats are also comfortable for long drives or commutes and are often lighter in weight than the heavy, stock seats that they replace.
